RBL: Crossley's Early Dating of Mark

Two RBL reviews worth noting for biblioblogger James Crossley.

Crossley, James G.
The Date of Mark's Gospel: Insight from the Law in Earliest

Reviews by David du Toit and John Painter

See James' reaction here. Like the reviewers, I doubt I'll be persuaded by an early dating of Mark, but I do want to read this book for certain assumptions it evidently calls into question.

UPDATE: See Stephen Carlson's review. Stephen thinks the book's strongest contribution is its background treatment of the sabbath, handwashing, and divorce controversies.

UPDATE (II): Mark Goodacre thinks we should reconsider traditional readings of Mk 7:18-19.
